The Tables Have Turned in NY: Melo Wants a Buyout, Knicks Reluctant

The tables have turned in a sort of non-suprising way for the New York Knicks and Carmelo Anthony. News from ESPN’s Marc Stein told fans that Carmelo’ camp has been attempting to engage in buyout talks with the franchise as of late:

However, the Knicks seem to be a bit reluctant to the request:

In simple terms, James Dolan would rather trade Melo away than just let him walk for some cash, which makes sense. The Knicks need to continue to add some pieces, whether it be future draft picks or potential players.

However, it does seem interesting that Melo, who has not individually expressed any interest in leaving the organization, is allowing his camp to take such action.

He reportedly wants to stay put, even after being disrespected and watching a young super star in Porzingis get treated similarly by their team President. Maybe there’s a thought that he can outlast Phil in the Big Apple? That surely wouldn’t be a crazy thought.

But we’ll have to see how things end up with this drama-filled franchise. It seems as though tension is building in the circle or Carmelo, Phil, and James Dolan. While the Knicks seem reluctant to swallow Melo’s contract, Phil seems pretty eager to get the superstar off the roster as soon as possible. It could be a long summer for Knicks fans.
